Old versions of PowerPlay

Hi!
I would like to estimate the power usage of an HDL design for Cyclone II compiled with version 11.0 of Quartus II. Where can I find and download the correct version of the powerplay excel sheet used to calculate the power usage?

I think you're mixing things up.  Powerplay is the feature in Quartus (now just called the Power Analyzer) that performs a power estimate based on an actual design.  The Early Power Estimator (EPE) is the spreadsheet tool where you enter information about the design to get an early estimate based on estimated resource usage.

I don't think there was an EPE for Cyclone II (too old at this point), but you can start here with the user guide:

Thanks, I did find that user guide. And is it states on the first page there is a spread sheet for the Cyclone II.
But at Intels web pages I can only find this user guide and not the spread sheet itself.

 

So the question is: Where do I download the referenced spread-sheet?
